90% of the disabled, who purchased tickets for Euro-2012 matches, are citizens of Ukraine and Poland, UEFA tournament director in Ukraine Markiyan Lubkivski told a presentation of UEFA social project "Football without limits."

According to Lubkivski, Ukraine as a co-host of Euro-2012 guarantees that disabled fans will be able to attend matches without assistance of accompanying persons. "We must guarantee this as we have undertaken engagements before UEFA," the official pointed out.

In his turn chairman of the National assembly of the disabled in Ukraine and president of the National Para-Olympic committee Valery Sushkevich noted that all objects of transportation infrastructure, public food service and sport objects in host-cities are more or less ready to receive the disabled.

At the same time he pointed out certain problems, impossible to settle before Euro-2012 start, and travel in metropolitan is one of them. "The situation with subway is quite wild. We may face the same situation which happened once in Saint Petersburg, when the authorities banned the disabled from using subway. I hope Ukraine will not introduce such measures," Sushkevich noted.

The official also pointed out that the disabled may face difficulties in Boryspil airport due to lack of special elevators for the disabled.

"Another problem is that from their special seats for the disabled the fans are not be able to see the whole football field," Sushkevich summed up.
